with 49% for ryan. not surprisingly, both sides claimed victory. mitt romney's campaign said biden seemed off balance and strange. the president's team said the debate exposed the risks of electing a romney/ryan ticket. the next presidential debate is tuesday. >>> while democrats are pleased with vice president biden's performance it's unclear whether his aggressive style was offensive or convincing to the independents who will hold the margin of victory in the presidential election. >> randall, let's talk more. it was obviously interesting to watch. what were the strong and weak points of the candidates? >> reporter: well, certainly vice president biden had to make sure that everyone knew that democrats would fight. i mean, remember that president obama himself said that he was too polite. no one could say that about biden as last night's showdown. ryan had to make sure he didn't lose any ground. this is his first venue for a national audience sitting opposite one of the most powerful democrats in the nation. and he held his own even as mitt romney is beginning to show some improvement i

the main, underlying story lines for both candidates. so, for joe biden, does he reinforce this idea that the white house is kind of tired and out of ideas? that's what the romney campaign has been pushing. for ryan, does he underline this idea that the ticket is basically hiding their true beliefs and their true numbers? if either one of those does that, then it carries on the story line. otherwise, it's just sort of fodder for a couple of days, but it just essentially disappears. >> john, there's a generation gap between the vice president and the congressman. how do you think that will affect the tone of the debate, if at all? >> reporter: well, it will be an interesting thing to watch. you can imagine it affecting the tone in terms of remember when geraldine ferraro debated george bush, there was a gender gap in that case, and she snapped back at him when he seemed to be patronizing on the question of foreign policy. there could be a situation here where joe biden could look sort of a little, you know, look, sunny, and that would end up being kind of a gaffe. but i think other th
